The Irish in Film
A Complete List of Irish Films

 Title  Angels with Dirty Faces
Here we have three Irish stereotypes slugging it out: the Irish gangster, the Irish priest, and the Irish cop. These three fight for a different kind of turf in the Bowery. They struggle for the hearts and minds of the community and the world. Who will represent us? Who is the aberration and who is the norm? Of course, we know "it takes all kinds" and that every group has its stars and bad apples, but being under the microscope makes us all too aware that we are part of the group, the group who is being judged as a whole. Through movies like this, the Bowery, though always ethnically mixed, became mythologized into the crucible of the Irish mob. Direct link to this DVD
